Widely revered as “the founding father of hunt seat equitation,” Morris has enjoyed success as both a rider and a coach representing the United States in many international competitions, including the Pan American Games as well as multiple Olympic Games. He has shifted his focus to developing the future of the sport by conducting his famed clinics around the world. Morris prides himself on his ability to hone riders’ positions so that they have the correct form and function to maximize their horses’ potential.

Organizer Bryna Closson and the team at Larkspur Farm are looking forward to welcoming Morris back to their farm to host another one of his first-rate clinics. Established in 2007 by owners Sutton and Betsy Finch, Larkspur Farm is dedicated to providing a high-quality show jumping facility conveniently located in the Flathead Valley near Whitefish, Montana.

The three-day event will take place with 2’6″ riders starting from 9-11 a.m., followed by 3’3″ riders from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then a short lunch break. The third group of riders will jump 4′ and will ride from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Auditors are welcome to attend and the cost for those interested is $100 per day.

On the evening of July 27, Morris will host an educational evening on classical riding and horsemanship with fellow legendary horseman and clinician, Buck Brannaman. The informative event will take place at the Majestic Valley Arena Pavilion in Kalispell, Montana starting at 5 p.m. The cost to attend is $20 at the door and audience members will be able to ask questions.

Following the conclusion of his clinic at Larkspur Farm, Morris will travel about five hours south to Bozeman, Montana to instruct riders at Tri-H Stables, a state-of-the-art riding facility offering training and stall and pasture boarding for all disciplines. Auditor fees are $75 per day and those interesting in learning from Morris should contact clinic organizer Kimber Friedrich at 406-579-6546 or via email at [email protected].

In addition to his accomplishments as a rider and trainer, over the course of his extensive career, Morris has also been highly successful as a coach, chef d’equipe of the United States Show Jumping Team, renowned clinician, author and judge.

One of his most recent works is his autobiography, Unrelenting: The Real Story: Horses, Bright Lights and My Pursuit of Excellence. Riders and auditors will have their chance to purchase a copy of the book and get it signed by the renowned rider and instructor himself at both clinics.
